About the Property

2 Bdrm, 1 Bath - Sleeps 5-6

Stunning views abound at our secluded river front home. If you want peace and quiet and a chance to sit in the river and relax - this is your spot! The house has two bedrooms upstairs. There is one queen bed, one full sized bed and a twin fold away bed, there is room on the floor for a queen air bed if you wish. Kitchen is fully appointed. Huge deck with table for 8. We are nestled against the side of the mountain and have beautiful views of the river and area mountains. We back up to state land, are just minutes away from hiking opportunities including the Northville-Lake Placid Trail and area mountains to name a few. The river is stocked every spring with Trout. Very picturesque and relaxing.
The town of Wells is a quaint town and the residents are very friendly. We're very close to Lake Algonquin which has a public, sandy beach with public parking and restrooms. The beach has a lifeguard during afternoon hours. There are tennis courts and the occasional summer concert at the town hall. There is also the "Revival" (previously a church) where concerts are held. Access to the Northville - Lake Placid trail is a couple miles down the road leading to our house, from here you can take marked hikes to the Suspension Bridge and Piseco Lake and beyond! There are also dozens of other hikes you can take within 10-15 miles of the house. In Wells there is a diner, a small general store and and Torts Twist Ice Cream shop that also sells wood for the fire.

Everyone who comes to Wells falls in love with the area. We hope you will too!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We have been enjoying this home for ten years - since our children were 4 & 5. About four years ago we got Max our Cocker Spaniel and he LOVES the river as much as us! People of all ages love visiting our home and the relaxation the river provides.

Why the Owner Chose Wells, NY, USA:
As a child I went camping at the Sacandaga River Campground every year. Many happy years I spent finding a swimming hole and rock hopping just a mile or two from this house!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We all find peace here at the house. Whether we are sitting on the large deck, in an Adirondack chair by the fireplace or actually sitting on a rock or chair in the river we are able to forget about the fast pace of life and slow down a little. The river is usually calm enough for toddlers and older folks to feel comfortable getting in.
